Community is central to human experience. Throughout our lives, we are members of multiple communities- family, school, work- each held together for different reasons, each an expression and reflection of our being.

But when was the last time we stopped to look? To truly witness those around us. When was the last time we saw our community anew? Remember, there are no strangers here. Only friends you haven’t yet met.


People is an audio-promenade work that  takes you on a walk into the heart of the community of Clonmel, where your memories of town will merge with poetry and soundtrack in this moving and thought-provoking immersive piece. 


Emerging from an international, intergenerational collaboration between The Junction Joes (graduates of the festival’s Trainee Programme), David Teevan, and contemporary Australian theatre company one step at a time like this, People first premiered at the Clonmel Junction Festival in 2014. The Festival’s 20th anniversary marks it’s return- with People offering  fresh and thought-provoking insight into the heart of Clonmel’s ever growing community, and reflecting on time’s passing.


Created by Junction Joes (Chloe Barry, Aoife Delany Reade & Aoibhin De Souza) & one step at a time like this.
